OK, Spike Jonze. I Trust You Now.

If you are anything like me (first, sorry about that) than you would have some trepidation about some live action version of "Where The Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak.  It is a classic and not to be messed about with.

And then it turns out that Spike Jonze is directing, and maybe you start to feel a little bit better.  And then you see the trailer, and again, if you are anything like me, you can't help but smile at these two minutes.  It looks fantastic, and somehow, someway faithful to the original spirit of the book.  Enjoy (if you can't then you are dead inside and they only way for you to live is to make everything dead around you.)

That looks quite exceptional.

Lots of good people involved in the production.

Still, turning a twenty-page children's book into a feature-length movie might turn it into a cakey bit of fluff. Which would be a disappointment, considering the source material.

"A cakey bit of fluff."

That's fun to say with eyebrows jacked and shoulders back.
